Stax sweeps the 'Best DIY/Builder Merchant Buying Team' award

Stax GLEE award 2017

Leading wholesale supplier, Stax Trade Centres, has won the coveted ‘Best DIY/Builder Merchant Buying Team’ award at the Glee Buyers Power List 2017 held at NEC Birmingham.

The annual awards are aimed at celebrating the most talented buyers in the garden retail industry, an area in which Stax have often stated is a constant focus for them. The category itself was incredibly competitive, with shortlisted names including B&Q, Homebase, Wickes, Jewson and Home Hardware.

Stax bolstered their buying team earlier this year with a number of a new hires, which it
is believed has given the team more freedom and flexibility that helps them to operate effectively. The move was part of their ongoing investment in increasing their buying power and strengthening their overall garden and outdoor portfolio.

Stax Purchasing Director, Simon Wright was there to accept the award alongside his team, he commented: “It’s a fantastic win in a very competitive category that we’re over the moon with. We have incredibly strong relationships with our suppliers that we have cultivated over the years. We firmly believe that a strong buying team is the best way to ensure we can offer our customers the best brands at the lowest prices.”

“I’m really proud of the team, they put in the hard work every day and it’s great for them to get the recognition they deserve!”

It’s not the first award win of the year for Stax either who are enjoying a successful 2017 so far having won the prestigious ‘Supplier of the Year’ award with bira Direct back in May.
